Hormones, HPA axis, etc.

Post about symptoms related to hormones and the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) axis. This includes both endocrine (e.g. thyroid, pituitary, adrenal) and reproductive (e.g. estrogen, testosterone, progesterone) hormones. Note that we also have "Thyroid dysfunction" and "Adrenal dysfunction" forums under the "Related Conditions" category, where problems with thyroid hormones and adrenal function can be discussed.
